Currently – 7/7/21

Happy Wednesday! Happy anniversary to the tons of people who got married 14 years ago! We actually had TWO weddings on 7/7/07 – one in the afternoon and one in the evening! It’s the first Wednesday of the month so I’m linking up with Anne to share 5 things we are currently doing.

I am eating…

So many fresh fruits and vegetables. I love all the in season fruit this time of year – strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, plums, watermelon, the list goes on. We signed up for a local CSA this year and the fresh veggies have been so good! We’ve had lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and beans.

I am feeling…

Summer!! We had a great holiday weekend with friends, grilling, crabs, and fun! We’ve been spending a lot of time with friends at the pool. I’ve been reading great beach books! I do feel like it is starting to go fast though. I hope summer slows down so we can relish every second!

I am going…

To plan some of our summer activities. The kids made a great list and Jeff and I have a few things to add to it. Now that it’s July, I need to sit down with my calendar and figure out how to squeeze in as much as we can.

I am ordering…

I am actually doing more returning than ordering right now. I ordered a few bracelets from Amazon and I’m returning two of them and I wasn’t sure what size bathing suit I wanted to I ordered two sizes.

I really need to be ordering groceries. My last grocery pick up was a total bust, but we’ve rounded it out with our CSA pickup and some meat in the freezer.

I am realizing…

that I need to get back to weight training. I’ve done a pretty good job closing my Apple Watch rings, but the Peloton app sent me a summary of the classes I took in June. The strength classes are just about nonexistent. That’s my wake up call. Hopefully by the time you read this, I will have one full body strength class completed.

We are supposed to have another hot and humid day here. So you will find us poolside! I’m currently reading People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry. It’s good but I’d like to finish it today or tomorrow so I can move on to the next fun summer book! Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I really love summer too and it’s going way too fast for my liking too.

    Good lukc on your weight training! I honestly hardly ever do any strength training at all, which is a shame.

    I find I return nearly as much as I order lately too and it’s making me even more determined to order less. Good luck on planning ALL The summer fun!

    With your blog title, this clearly is totally your SEASON! 🙂 Poolside/beach reading is just the best, and sometimes lately I’ve been feeling the same that I want to read fast so that I can get to the next book on my huge stack. Too many fun options, and summer does have a way of just going too fast. Love all the ideas on your list – we have kind of a mini one with summer cut short by a new baby arriving in August, but all the more reason to be intentional about getting to some of the fun summer activities. Enjoy!

    Oh, we LOVE our CSA so I’m always happy to hear when people have joined one! The summer veggies are the BEST!!! And I need to schedule some of our bucket list items in as well. Of course, we’re barely into our first week of summer but I know it’s going to fly. And I need to get my summer reading kick started too!

    I haven’t been to the National Zoo for years! We used to go rather often. Sigh. So glad you are enjoying all the summer feels! Personally, I think summer feels great!

    Yesterday I was complaining that we’re almost in the double-digit-days of July and it’s not fair. That picture of the bracelets screams summer. I used to buy those kinds of bracelets as souvenirs from beach trips!
